46 ways to turn heads in a classic white shirt

It’s time to take out your classic white shirt and to re-style it in such a way that it looses its “bore” or “strictly
official” status and you create an awesome impression every time you wear (read, flaunt!) it!

  1. Wear it with a bright nail or lip color (or both!)

White shirts are the best to keep your look understated yet gorgeous and bring out any other feature or accessory you want to highlight. A bright nail or lip color creates an edgy impression without being loud when teamed with a white shirt.

2. Creating a extra mid-layer

When you are creating multiple layers of clothing, rather than keeping the white shirt as a hidden base layer, experiment it as a mid layer. It helps to accentuate the effect of layering as white stands as a stark layer in between.
